Pittsburgh Whole Foods recalls contaminated cheese
A Whole Foods in East Liberty has recalled Jean Perrin Edel de Cleron cheese, after a man fell seriously ill with listeriosis after eating the cheese. Whole foods is advising customers who purchased the cheese to dispose of it in the garbage or return it to the store for a full refund.
A pricey French cheese sold at Whole Foods Market in East Liberty is being recalled more than a month after a 69-year-old Westmoreland County man grew seriously ill from listeriosis, a food-borne bacterial infection.
The man fell ill June 7 and was hospitalized after eating Jean Perrin Edel de Cleron cheese -- a soft, pasteurized cow's milk French cheese that sells for about $25 a pound.
